Answer:  FARM HANDS

(LOC) (Photo credit: The Library of Congress)”][Man in bill cap and dungaree coat, possibly a...(I like it!  Classic Jumble clue words, scrambled very nicely.  I wouldn’t be surprised if “hairdo” tripped up a few of you.  I know it has me, in the past.  Great answer letter layout.  Detailed cartoon and a good little pun.  It looks like these boys are playing poker, but where I grew up the farmers liked to play a card game called euchre.  For a while, during junior high/middle school and into high school, we would play the game during lunch time and study hall.  I don’t remember who introduced us to the game, and it’s a little strange, because we were all suburban brats.  But, I remember my mom telling me it was an old farmers’ game.  I haven’t played it in close to forty years, but I do remember it being a lot of fun.  Anyone ever play the game?  Any old farmers out there?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
